This video reveals us two truths. One is that “Outro Freestyle” is the closing track of Steve Lacy’s debut album “Apollo XXI”, dropped at midnight. The other is that dreams are better than reality, but they end too soon.
Vampire Weekend – This Life
The summer you’re waiting for will sound like this.
Denzel Curry – Speedboat
In the new video for “Speedboat” there are car crashes, a whole mansion blowing up, and helicopter raids. It seems that these scenes come from an action movie you can watch on Rai 2 (but with a little more budget).
FKA twigs – Cellophane (Live at The Wallace Collection)

Blood Orange – Hope (feat. Puff Daddy & Tei Shi)
Taken from Dev Hynes’ last project “Negro Swan”, the “Hope” video features Empress Of dressed in a full-vinyl outfit, A$AP Rocky and Tyler, The Creator in the studio with Puff Daddy and the model Alton Mason dancing against a bright red backdrop. Even within the first few frames you are in front of a series of beautiful shots.
Los Retros – Friends
They’re the kind of people that I’d want to be friend with (including Cuco <3 )
Cupido – Milhouse
⤵️💘CONOCE AL CHICO DE TUS SUEÑOS💘⤵️ The Spanish boyband Cupido, which mixes trap with bedroom pop, has definitely made its way into my heart.
Jonah Yano & BADBADNOTGOOD – nervous
The Toronto group BADBADNOTGOOD connects with Japanese artist Jonah Yano on his beautiful ballad inspired by the music of Joni Mitchell. The eyeliner makes me nervous, the song calms me down.
UMI – Down to Earth
Beauty often hides in simple things.
Tyler, The Creator – EARFQUAKE
Tyler, The Creator has shared the video for EARFQUAKE last Friday, but it’s still the best video of the week.
With a mix of Indie, Baroque Pop and Jazz, dj and producer Marvely launches his first single named Rho Fiera. A track that tells two different love stories with, in common, the same sad epilogue. One between a man and a woman who live their “La Boum”, a film that could inspire some of the scenes in the video, with all those different states of mind that characterize any kind of relationship. The other, less romantic, is the one starring the “Albero della Vita”, which lived for six months at Rho Fiera during the Milan Expo, and then turned into a memory.
Mi sento solo come l’albero della vita a Rho Fiera dimmi che sei sincera, almeno tu.
The song marks the beginning of a path dreamed of by the former actor, dancer, DJ and producer Marvely, and is influenced by the sounds of Chillwave/Synth Pop Washed Out and Toro y Moi, but with an Italian jazz body inspired by Pino Daniele and the rhythms of drums typical of Rhodes.
Chicago-based duo Whitney are back with a new single and accompanying video, FTA, the first glimpse of the band forthcoming album Forever Turned Around, to be released on August 30. We just can’t wait till summer.
Alex G – Gretel
Another good news for guitar lovers: (Sandy) Alex G announced his upcoming ninth studio album (House of Sugar, out on September 13) with a new music video for lead single in which Alex and his friends enjoy a day of demolition derby.
Jay Som – Superbike
You’re good for a week with guitars and vintage clips.
Sampa The Great – Final Form
All you have to do is DANCE.
Channel Tres – Sexy Black Timberlake
Need an outfit inspiration for the weekend? There you are.
See Maw – Shh
shhut up! It’s time to listen to the Undamento’s new artist.
Bleached – Kiss You Goodbye
I need a smoothie by the pool just right now!
Ty Segall – Taste
Hey, Ty what’s got you so upset?
Skepta – No Sleep | A COLORS SHOW
Skepta stopped at Colors Show studio for a special performance of No Sleep. The video kicks off with the rapper singing in front of the microphone but at a certain point it replicates the artwork to Ignorance Is Bliss album.
Plaid – Dancers
The electronic duo Plaid has found a beautiful way to raise awareness about the use of plastics:
“The concept behind “Dancers” stems from the themes behind ‘Polymer,’ inspired by the ‘strength, endurance, and troubling persistence’ of plastics. (…) the video serves as a metaphor for the anthropocene; in which humanity and the plastic it generates become integrated into one organism, in a world where nature and polymers become one in the same.”
Kelsey Lu’s new visual for “Foreign Car” directed by Vincent Haycock is about as the Reinassance as well as the modern era and shows her dancing in different scenarios: from the iconographic to the more typical of the rap world. All seasoned with elegance and great aesthetic taste.
Raveena – Stronger
Raveena is as strong as the roots of an ancient tree. The Danica Kleinknecht-directed video illustrates her trying to free herself from some arms that hold her like poison ivy.
Little Simz – 101 FM
Little Simz’s new video is a tribute to her adolescence. It finds the young rapper driving in a car while listening to the radio or writing music in her bedroom. Everything here is about music: “‘101 FM’ represents a time in my life where all I wanted to do was be surrounded by music, whether that was doing radio sets, going to house parties, or just writing in my bedroom—it was all I cared for”.
Flume – Let You Know
We can read the lyrics of the song on the garbage bags of an open-air dump.
Cuco – Bossa No Sé ft. Jean Carter
Stop suffering, for Christ’s sake!
Shura – religion (u can lay your hands on me)
This video looks like it was written by Paolo Sorrentino and in fact the director Chloe Wallace started from “The Young Pope” inspiration to tell the delicate love story between two sisters.
Amber Mark – What If
Very soft and slow like a Sunday morning awakening.
JPEGMAFIA – The Who
The visual for JPEGMAFIA’s “The Who” is inspired by vintage sci-fi horror movies and keeps us in suspence till the last second. PS: Continue to watch after the credits.
CLAVDIO – Le Tue Gambe
We thank the director of photography Gianluca Palma for giving us some beautifully shot visuals.
